It felt like a rehash of the last chapter of Starters.
I love Starters, if that book was a bit longer and tied up loose ends it would have been a great stand alone. ( )

The second book in the Starters Series is set in a dystopian future world where there are mostly Starters (children) and Enders (grandparents) because the Middles (parents) were killed during the Spore Wars. Some of the starters including Callie and Michael accepted payment when they had chips inserted into their brains by Prime Destinations, which operates a body bank. Once the chips are inserted into the brain, the recipients can be controlled and manipulated. We learned in the first book that Prime Destinations was destroyed and now Callie is determined to find the man behind the operation. Then when she finds him, she is hoping that she can have the chip removed from her brain. Things become complicated when she and Michael team with another Starter named Hyden. She, Michael, and Hyden find themselves in several dangerous situations as they search for a way to be free of the brain chips in the hopes of returning to a normal life.

The importance of family is stressed in both the first and second book. One of Callie’s main concerns is for her brother’s safety. In this second book, Callie also begins to think that her father may still be alive and her search for him supports her wish to be surrounded by family. I consider this to be an average offering among the many dystopian books currently available to the YA reader.

E' stato fortemente criticato da molti e, onestamente, non saprei proprio il perché.
Precisiamo, ci sono molti difetti nell'intera duologia Starters, ma, alla fine, facendo un bilancio dei pro e contro possiamo dire che l'elemento innovativo, cosa molto rara in uno YA, da tutto un valore nuovo all'opera. ( )

Enders (Starters #2) by Lissa Price is book two and I didn't read book one and did okay but it did refer to some things in book one I didn't know. It wasn't enough to hinder the story. I would say it could be a stand alone. I really liked this book. Poor people could get chips in their head and rich people could rent their bodies, taking over with the rich mind. But the chip still has more than one purpose they are finding out as someone's head explodes as a warning. It is an action packed sci-fi that is fast paced and creepy because it is so invasive and leaves the chipped people so helpless. Great read. Got this book from the library. ( )

"With the Prime Destinations body bank destroyed, Callie no longer has to rent herself out to creepy Enders. But Enders can still get inside her mind and make her do things she doesn't want to do. Like hurt someone she loves"-- Provided by publisher.
